Cāmīkaraprabha (चामीकरप्रभ) refers to the “luster of (molten) gold”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.5 (“Kārttikeya is crowned”).—Accordingly, after the Kṛttikās spoke to Kārttikeya: “[...] Kumāra reached the foot of a Nyagrodha tree at Kailāsa in the fast chariot along with Nandin seated to his right. [...] Those who looked at Kumāra resembling Śiva saw a great halo pervading the three worlds. Immediately they saluted Kumāra who was enveloped by the brilliant halo, the lustre of molten gold (tapta-cāmīkaraprabha) and the refulgence of the sun. With shoulders stooping down and eagerly engaged in shouting the cry of “Obeisance” they flanked him to the right and left and stood by. [...]”.
